Module overview

This optional module for the MA English Literary Studies, taught by those contributing to the programme in a given year, will introduce you to the key critical, theoretical, historiographical and conceptual debates surrounding the study of genre. It will emphasise the issues which have been central to current scholarship on genre, and consider how literary and cultural texts have employed, combined, and subverted the formal conventions of genre.
